    Binny sez "The true cost of operation Cast Lead is that when Israel starts shouting "WAR CRIME!! WAR CRIME!!" and pointing fingers, Israel will now be ignored." The number of Palestinians killed in Operation Cast Lead did not exceed five or six hundred, Lorenzo Cremonesi, a correspondent for Italy's Corriere della sera reported. He based his report on tours of hospitals in the Gaza Strip and on interviews with families of casualties. He assessed the number of wounded to be far lower than 5,000, the number quoted by Hamas and repeated by the UN and the Red Cross. He interviewed Gazans who echoed Israel's insistence of how Hamas gunmen used civilians as human shields. Other Palestinians told him of Hamas operatives donning paramedic uniforms and commandeering ambulances. A woman spoke of Hamas using UN buildings as launch pads for rockets. He reported that he had difficultly gathering evidence as the local population was terrified of Hamas.
